The Saxony-based watch brand A. Lange & Söhne has expanded its range of colours for its chronograph collection: Two highly attractive models in pink gold/black and white gold/grey have just been introduced to the market.

Industry experts regard the DATOGRAPH from A. Lange & Söhne as one of the most popular chronographs. In 1999, the world’s first ever column-wheel chronograph with a flyback function, precisely jumping minute counter and outsize-date display caused quite a sensation in professional circles. It has now long since achieved cult status.

It is not only the technical finesse that is unique, but also the harmonious integration of function and aesthetics. In the DATOGRAPH UP/DOWN, it has had a longer power reserve of 60 hours since 2012 as well as a power-reserve indicator with an UP/DOWN scale that gave the watch its name.

Since May 2015, the chronograph, which previously only came in a platinum case, has also been available in a pink-gold version with a black dial.

The argenté-coloured subsidiary dials and deep-blue moon disc on the new white-gold model of the Datograph Perpetual stand out particularly clearly thanks to the dial’s subtle grey background. Since 2006, the name has represented a combination of a flyback chronograph and a perpetual calendar, which will not require correction until 2100.

If this does ever become necessary, however, the calendar indicators can be advanced either individually or synchronously. Lange’s great eye for detail is also clear in the universal corrector specially designed for this job: To prevent the indications from being inadvertently changed, the push piece can only be pressed in the 10 o’clock position and when the crown is pulled out.
